Commenting on how the government is working on sustaining the food products, Siraj Hussain, Secretary, Ministry of Food Processing Industry, says, “The govt is concerned about the losses especially in fruits and vegetables because it reduces the availability of food products and also cause inflation. So, the govt is providing a number of incentives to food processing industry, food preservation industry so that there is facility of integration from farm to the fork.”

 The Food processing industry is expected to grow in next five year reaching Rs 873,000 Cr by 2015-16.
